Correct expression #2 (permalink) Wed Apr 06, 2005 19:49 pm   Correct expression
 

Everything is correct here. To be through with somebody means that you don't want to see them anymore. You have had enough of them.

I meant you should highlight the word "him" in the main sentence of the question and delete it in the answer.

"she broke with him and disappeared", is it the same?

Hi Szky,

I am afraid that 'broke with him' doesn't quite work. We use the expression 'break with' to suggest that you no longer follow for example a tradition or a custom. After years of celebrating the festival in May, the villagers decided to break with tradition and hold it instead in June. The nearest expression to yours would be : She broke up with him.

You may be interested in a piece I've written using 'break' with different prepositions.
